Vegan Blackberry Lavender Scones

There is a special place in my heart reserved for scones! I love them ever since I first tried them, which was in Toronto, Canada in December two years ago at the St. Lawrence Food market. It was a very cold day and they were fresh out of the oven. Soo good!

My parents have a really large wild grown garden and walking through it always feels like magic. And Nina and I we always find something new like these wild blackberries.

Doesn’t they look nice? But we needed to be extra careful, standing on a ladder because they had thorns. And I laughed my ass off while like a hundred thorns stuck in Ninas clothes because the Queen of Chaos is extremely clumsy too!;)

How to make Blackberry-Lavender Scones

First we prepare the vegan buttermilk: In a small bowl whisk together the nut milk and the vinegar and led it stand for a few minutes. Then add the vanilla extract.

wet ingredients: vegan buttermilk with vanilla extract

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cardamon, salt until combined. Add vegan butter cubes, then rub in with your fingers until the mix looks like fine crumbs. You can also use a pastry knife.

Add in the chopped lavender & blackberries with the wet ingredients and gently with a spatula fold into the dry ingredients until a ragged dough forms. Do not overmix! You should still se some streaks of flour throughout.

Scatter some flour onto the work surface and tip the dough out. Dredge the dough and your hands with a little more flour, then fold the dough over 2-3 times until it’s a little smoother. Divide the dough into 2 parts and shape each half into a disk about 1 1/2 inch thick. Cut each disk into 6 parts. You should end up with 12 scones.

Add scones onto a baking sheet, 6 each sheet, and brush with some nutmilk and sprinkle with brown sugar.

Bake on 180°C for 18-22 minutes until golden brown. Let cool. Once the scones have cooled for a few minutes, drizzle with the blackberry glaze (2-3 tbsp crushed blackberry juice, 1 1/2 cup icing sugar depends on consistency, whisk together until smooth).

Sadly I did not had enough light to shoot the scones the first evening and that’s why they look differently on the pictures. The first day you have a pinkish-violet-reddish colored glaze and the next day they look not as shocking and more natural;)

Enjoy these really delicious scones, they are moist and perfect and great for breakfast, snack or in the afternoon with some coffee.
